Film Classics in 35mm!
United States | 2007 | Paul Thomas Anderson
Three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis claims that he will retire from acting after starring in Paul Thomas Anderson’s new fashion-world film Phantom Thread, due at the end of this year. Thus the time seems right to revive the other PTA film in which Day-Lewis starred (and won an Oscar). In There Will Be Blood, the British-Irish thespian plays a silver prospector who becomes a ruthless California oil baron during the boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Widely regarded as one of the very best films of the first decade of the 21st century, this epic of America has never before been shown at the Cinematheque. We now offer a very rare chance to see this 10-year-old masterpiece the way PTA wants it to be shown—projected from 35mm film, the medium in which it was painstakingly shot. (It also won an Oscar for cinematography.) 158 min.
